a few days of catch up

I was in the studio with Patti Van Tassel twice this last week, and working with Andris Balins on our time lag piece in the studio one day. So, even though there hasn’t been much physical practice, I have had a pretty productive and creative week!

I have been feeling a twinge of pain in my right wrist from inflammation this week, so I have been taking it easy by just doing AT work, improvising, sight-reading with 2-mallets on marimba, playing drumset, doing simple pad work… and, to prepare for upcoming gigs, I’m doing a lot listening, score study, visualizing and practicing in my head.
